Ocean Court by the Sea

Reviewed 18 May 2014

Thank you "Ocean Court by the Sea" for great hospitality we were so impressed how close the ocean is to the location (DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STRET). Great staff very accommodating, rooms very clean with flat screens. Very impressed should be labeled as a hotel rather than a motel.

Was expecting a cheap Montauk-like motel which would have been fine for us for the price and last minute. This place really exceeded our expectations. Plenty of towels which were soft and fluffy unlike other motels and lots of soap too (unlike other reviews). Kitchen was a bonus, nice bathroom, spacious room for Mom, Dad and two boys. Beach right across the street. Lucy was great. Couldn't have been happier with our stay and will definitely be back!

Maybe because it was pre-season in mid June but this hotel was a joke! No towels or soap in bathroom that we had reserved 2 months previous to our arrival. Sheets did not fit beds, did not appear freshly laundered and the pillows were scary!! I would definitely check out the room before I paid. We were asked to pay when we checked in and not when we checked out as is usually done, (Maybe should have been our first clue!) It is very convenient to the Pier Village itself but some major overhaul has to be seen to make it acceptable. Was not a cheap price tag either!

Clean motel with an exceptional location. We happened to get a room that when we stepped out we saw the ocean right in front of us; beautiful. Surpisingly the decor inside the rooms was much more modern than what we expected. The only thing i would complain about is some rowdy college kids in the room next door and although 90% of the room was very clean there were some parts that were missed (i.e. dust on the ceiling fan, window shades, chairs, floors were clean though)

Room Tip: make sure to ask for an ocean view room

This is a great little find of a motel. It's not scary or dirty. It is not an upscale place but considering the location, the price can't be beat. It is not on the beach but most if not all rooms have an ocean view. Great for those one or two day shore trips with kids or with hubby to break up the summer. It is in walking distance to many fabulous on the beach or restaurants you can dine in with a view of the ocean.

Long Branch is also a smaller but nice easy beach to go to with a family.

I loved my stay here. The view was absolutely beautiful. This hotel is located right on the beach. I can see my tennage kids sitting on the beach from the deck of this hotel. The location is the best. It is literally right on the boardwalk in Pier Village. I was impressed with the rooms, hardwood floors, beatiful bathrooms, very clean with comfortable pillows. I would defintely stay here again and again. Prices are a lot cheaper than other places in Long Branch. Our room had a 32" flat screen tv and free and fast wireless internet connection.
